Excellent, attentive service. Indoor dining felt extremely COVID-safe. Food is pretty good, but not extraordinary.
Nice Matin is a great place to eat in New York City. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is wonderful. The food is well prepared and tastes fantastic. The staff is friendly and attentive. Open for breakfast,lunch, and dinner.
Their food is reliably good and the service matches.
It was too sunny outside. We were the only people inside.
Great neighborhood spot and an approachable menu of staples.
Good enough but not great. Charging for bread is tacky. Heat lamps make a difference, we were comfortable on a chilly nite.
Our group of 6 felt very safe and had a lovely meal. The Steak Tartare app was disappointing, but the Halibut main course was outstanding. The Steak Frites was good. The chicken was fine, but nothing to rave about. The desserts were fabulous. A good option for the neighborhood. The staff was very attentive and efficient.
We ate outside and it was extremely pleasant. Not too noisy except when an ambulance went by. Excellent avocado toast. Also the hummus and pita was very tasty. Enjoyed the pistou soup which was full of fresh vegetables.
The service was safe and professional.
Delicious food, great server, good value. A little noisy!
Great upper Westside French place to eat and relax.
It was our first dinner out with friends since March. The 4 of us sat outside, which made it quite noisy as a lot of cars, trucks and buses go up Amsterdam. However, that's really the only "complaint" because everything else, the food, the excellent service, and the overall feel were just exceptional. I have been to Nice Matin many times for business lunches, but of course not during the pandemic. I am glad they were able to re-open, a real French comfort-food place that has earned a solid place on my list of restaurants I cherish.
All satisfactory, however, service was a bit disorganized and difficult to summons.
I came back after not visiting for a long time and I was very happy about the food and the service was great. Dining outside on the street was definitely and a new experience and quite funny!
Fantastic place Food is unusually creative and excellent Service was great and one of best wine lists in NYC
I love your restaurant. I completely understand that the outside dining experience is imposed, not a choice. The imposition is necessary. That said, sitting practically in the middle of Amsterdam Avenue, with exhaust fumes, noise, and in close proximity to parking cars, was not conducive to fine dining. In addition, our meals were delayed for quite a long time before arriving. Once it arrived, it was fine, if a bit over salted. Our waiter was solicitous and caring, poised and knowledgable.
Our server Eddie is amazing. Covid standards excellent. Sadly one homeless person asked us for food and since Nice Matin is next to the Lucern I guess we’re not the first. I volunteer at God’s Love We Deliver and maybe they can help.
Another lovely dinner at my favorite UWS restaurant. I can't wait to dine inside!
As always, Nice Matin is a treat on every level. Food, service and safety were great. No problems at all around the Hotel Lucerne issues. Calm and quiet.
A welcomed break from home cooking. Menu well chosen,as
is wine. Service was just right.
"Energetic" is one way to put it... the street noise was pretty ghastly. But the food & service were great.
Probably the best aspect was the service of our waiter. He was polite, attentive and knowledgeable. My companion is very fussy about her martinis and he produced the right drink.
Our food was good. The Moroccan spicy salmon was tasty but not very spicy. The cote du Rhone was very good although not a generous amount.
There were many empty tables at our time so were happy not to have to leave after 90 minutes. My friend drove in from NJ so it would have disappointing if we had to leave.
Always a favorite, but we miss the tuna tartare! Please bring it back.
Food has improved since my last visit. Happy to recommend.
For outside dining it was the most civilised in the neighbourhood
Almost felt normal
Feel good moment
Appetizers, entrees and desserts all very good. Wine and cocktails excellent. Street noise due to mandatory sidewalk dining - this too shall pass! Recommended, with hope that soon some indoor tables will be available
Nice Matin was a wonderful night out!
The food and the atmosphere were great (and we felt safely distanced from our neighboring tables)
The restaurant next door had a jazz group playing and that added to the whole night
We’ll be back!
In the new world of outdoor dining, our experience at Nice Matin was as comfortable as it could be. We were seated in the sidewalk section, not in the roadway, which was not different from any outdoor experience in the past. I had the chopped salad and hummus bi tahini small plates. Both were fresh and delicious. The pita bread and the vegetables accompanying the hummus also were fresh. I drank a lovely Cotes du Rhone.
The service was efficient and pleasant. We were not hurried. My companion arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation and was seated without any problem while she waited for my arrival.
Nice Matin is expensive. I didn't mind the cost so much when I was in the lovely and lively dining room, but that's not a complaint about the restaurant; only a lament about the times.
The meal was very good and the ambiance but the service deteriorated after the main course was served.
Always a lovely experience. Good wine list, too. Our favorite in the neighborhood.
Nice Matin is my favorite UWS restaurant and I always look forward to
dining there. The food is delicious, the staff is professional and friendly and
the ambience sort of makes me feel like I'm in France!
Food menu is different than what is on website. Was looking forward to the mussels and not on the lunch menu.
Consistently good food, experience and overall value.
Lovely outdoor dining.
Outside due to COVID... sad plate for bagels&lox platter. Snippy waitress. I guess everyone’s under pressure these days.
We dined outdoors and the street traffic was very noisy.
The cusine was very good and the server did his best to keep up as the place was extremely crowded.
If you do not mind bus fumes, honking horns and barking dogs, you will have a good experience.
We want to give the restaurants business as when the weather changes and becomes cold, nobody will dine outside so it is good to go now while you are still able to take a table outdoors!
We made reservations for a later time because an earlier one was not possible. But an additional call later made it possible to seat us earlier, at our preferred time, but the host apologized for having to seat us in the roadway area. When we arrived, she had changed us to a better place—actually ideal—in the extended sidewalk area. What had started out as problematic the host gradually moved us up to the ideal, a quieter, breezily healthier place.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Nice Matin. Tables are nicely spaced, service is excellent, and food is better than ever. The wine selection is incredible - so much wonderful choice. We had 5 at our table and 3 of us ordered the Hanger Steak. It was fantastic and perfectly cooked. Fries are so, so good. Another guest had the Mediterranean Grain & Lentil bowl and loved it. Finally, one of our guests ordered the hummus as a main course and enjoyed a lighter dinner. The waiter was very accommodating, checking back in frequently. I highly recommend dining at Nice Matin.
Thank you Gabriel and team!
